Felonious Bunk

Kottke:

In a book called Three Felonies A Day, Boston civil rights lawyer Harvey Silverglate says that everyone in the US commits felonies everyday and if the government takes a dislike to you for any reason, they'll dig in and find a felony you're guilty of.

That looks very interesting, in a pants-shitting sort of way, of course. Additionally, it looks like it might be useful as a definitive response to the "If you're not doing anything wrong, what do you have to hide?" types.
